Heimgartner stripped of maiden TCR podium
Andre Heimgartner has been stripped of a maiden TCR Australia podium in Race 3 at Sandown after copping a post-race penalty.
The Kelly Racing driver had crossed the line third earning his and the team’s first podium but has since been hit with a 15 second penalty for passing under yellow flag conditions.
Heimgartner was judged to have overtaken Wall Racing’s Tony D’Alberto at Turn 1 under yellows due to Alexandra Whitley’s stricken Volkswagen Golf.
As a result of the sanction, D’Alberto has been promoted to the final podium spot while Heimgartner has dropped to eighth in the results.
